For a part-time faculty position, please apply directly to the department for which you would like to teach. Contact information can be found on our Department Chair List.

Whom do I contact if I have benefits questions?
Please contact the Office of Benefits and Compensation. They are located in 401 Wilson Hall and can be reached by phone at (248) 370-4207.

May I change the months over which my salary is paid?
Faculty members may choose to have their salaries paid either over 9 months (August through April), or over 12 months (August through July). New faculty members, unless they sign up for the 12-month pay option, will be paid on a 9-month basis.

To change from a 9-month pay schedule to a 12-month pay schedule, a signed Payroll Annnualization Authorization Form must be turned into Academic Human Resources, 407 Wilson Hall, by August 10th in order for the change to be effective for the following academic year. The authorization will remain in effect until it is revoked by the faculty member.  Due to budgetary reporting and IRS requirements, we cannot change pay schedules in the middle of an academic year.

When is open enrollment for my benefits?
Oakland University holds its open enrollment in late October or November. Please watch for e-mails and Oakland communications for updates.

I cannot access my Grizzly ID, E-mail, or SAIL account. Whom should I contact?
If you have any questions or problems with setting up your account, please contact the Help Desk at 248-370-4357. Help Desk hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m Monday through Friday.
